Morning Glory

I'm moving on in SYTYC! My project was the repurposed dress, Morning Glory. Go HERE for the tutorial.
This was my entry post:

I love repurposing clothes that would normally be passed over and instead making something beautiful. I used a men’s dress shirt, a very large woman’s shirt, and an old jumper to make a dress that could fit right in at Shabby Apple.


The marigold yellow top, ruffled accent around the neckline and down the front, and sweet sleeves beautifully pop in contrast with the gray, button down skirt.


An old elastic belt with a flower clip embellishment allows for a transition between fun and function—making this dress perfect for work, church, or a night out!


Who would have thought that these outcasts could be upcycled into something so lovely?

Parties I’ll be linking up with:
